Thread: fresh opensuse install : all gnome 3 extensions installations are failing

    Unhappy fresh opensuse install : all gnome 3 extensions installations are failing

    hello,

    I installed yesterday opensuse tumbleweed with kernel 4.6.2-1.
    I wanted to install some gnome 3 extensions, but no installation is possible.

    here is how I proceeded; I :
    - launched firefox (v47)
    - connected to https://extensions.gnome.org
    - selected an interesting extension
    - turned on the button
    - at this time, the screen became dark (sometimes the session is closed automatically), and after a few seconds the desktop appeared again, but the "installed extensions" tab indicates me no extension was installed. moreover, when I refresh the page of the extension, the button is "off".

    I disabled the popup blocker but it changed nothing.

    on other browsers (chrome, opera) I even have no on/off button...

    Hi
    When visiting the extensions site, did it ask about accepting/allowing the site?

    In FireFox about:plugins is gnome-shell-integration present?

    Also is the system all up to date (zypper dup)?

    hello

    thank you for your quick answer.

    - FF doesn't ask me to accept the site, no popup appears when connecting to this page
    - "about/plugins" --> the plugin is present, it is enabled
    - "zypper dup" --> it updated some stuff, I rebooted the computer, but after that the behavior is still the same (click to flip on the button => dark screen a few seconds, and nothing is installed)

    Hi
    OK, create a new user and login, open FireFox and go to https://extensions.gnome.org/ do you see any popup? Try installing an extension...

    well, it resists!

    I created an admin user, changed of user, and launched FF.
    back to the gnome extension page, I saw 2 little popups : it effectively asks me to allow some gnome related stuff.
    now, I remember it has already showed me these 2 popups with the first user, sorry I did not remembered this.

    but the installation of new extensions still fails, in the same manner.

    Hi
    OK, if you press alt+F2 and then enter;
    Code:
    lg <press enter key>
    Then click on extensions, do you see them installed? If so click on the errors link, any errors? Press the esc key to exit looking glass (lg).

    I just checked here, I installed the Lock Keys extension, it installed and works fine, so maybe there is a missing typelib.

    Can you remove all your extensions and check in lg they are all gone and restart the shell, press alt+F2;
    Code:
    r <press enter>
    Check there are none lurking via lg again and also via;
    Code:
    ls ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
    Then visit the extensions site again and add the lock keys extension, does this install and work?

    hello

    I called lg, but on the extensions tab I see none. It is coherent with what I see in the extensions site of gnome : even after having flipped on an extension, on "installed extensions" there was nothing.

    and the directory gnome-shell only contains the sub-directory application_state

    Hi
    So is this a pure gnome install, or you added later as a desktop?

    Hi
    Also check journalctl as your trying to install and extension, open a
    terminal window;
    Code:
    su -
    journalctl -f
    Then add an extension and see what gets printed out... ctrl+c to exit
    the journalctl follow command.

    ah, you're really strong!

    Indeed, I forgot to mention that during the configuration, I decided to add mate desktop, because I somewhat know how to use it, and I thought that later it could be useful.

    Do you think I should reinstall opensuse without add mate?
